Here's Why You Should Visit Destin This Fall

September 12, 2022

Fall is my favorite season! It also happens to be one of the best times of year to travel- and there's no better place to travel to than Destin! Here's why you should visit Destin this fall. 


Leaf Peeping 

Destin may not be the first place you think of when you want to see leaves changing, but you can actually see gorgeous fall foliage here! Immerse yourself in the beauty by hiking through one of the best local leaf peeping areas- Topsail Hill Preserve. For even better views, head a little bit north to hike. Don't feel like exercising? Take a drive and admire the leaves from the comfort of your car!
